*- For this winter's War of 18-49 updates, the A18-49+ is based on a projected league average, calculated by applying the league average's current year-to-year trend (thru 1/12/14) to the final 2012-13 average. This should help make these numbers compare more fairly with fall seasons past.
Rating the Ratings: The growth just kept coming for Sons of Anarchy in season six. As usual, it hit a new series high (3.1) on premiere night and was slightly up year-to-year through most of the season, culminating with a 2.8 finale that was up 18%. Even as CBS and NBC got stronger in the Tuesday 10/9c hour this fall, Sons was still usually the winner. The show will end after next season for creative reasons, and there's no reason right now to believe it won't finish on a strong note. Grade: A-.
Here's the now updated War of 18-49 post for Sons of Anarchy.
